A rainy dreary day has me staring at our indoor plants and thinking of sunny days. What are your favorite indoor plants? Today I am sharing plants that are both low maintenance and act as fillers in your decor. Whether you need height or width, these are great for filling that empty place in your home.
You have likely noticed the faux version of this plant at Target. Before you spend a lot of money on the fake version, read this. Buy the REAL version! They are super easy to keep alive. Seriously! I have three and I water them every two to three weeks. Click here for instructions on how best to care for a snake plant.
There are multiple varieties of philodendron to choose from and they are all gorgeous. When we moved into our home, I dug up three “lacy tree” varieties that were planted outside and placed them in pots on my patio. They are thriving and I absolutely love them. You can use them in your home decor and I plan to pull ours inside when it gets too cold outside. Read more about caring for philodendrons here.
Looking for a darker plant that is easy? I love the darker colored leaves on rubber trees. They are also a great substitution for fiddle leaf figs (more on this in in a bit). You can find tips for caring for your rubber tree here.
White Bird of Paradise
Looking for height? A “white” bird of paradise is your plant. When I purchased one from the garden center, they told me to simply leave it alone. I water it every few weeks and let it do it’s thing. You can read more here about this delightful plant.
As you can see, the beloved fiddle leaf fig did not make my list. Gasp! Simply because I spent a small fortune on one and it died a slow painful death. Yes, they are super trendy and pretty, but you will notice a lot of people are now turning away from them and using easier plants in their decor.
I hope you’re all staying dry, and wherever you may be, indoors is THE place to be today!
